Day 22 - Last Book You Read #26DayBloggingChallenge
This post is supposed to be based on the last book I read but considering that the last book I read was #GirlBoss by Sophia Amoruso and I did a book review on it just the other day for one of the other challenges - I thought I'd cheat a little bit today.
So instead of sharing with you all what book I read last, I thought I'd share what series I watched last!
Granted I am only four episodes in, but I knew from the get go that this series was for me.
Not only do I adore Rachel Bilson (if I had to pick an actress to play me in a film, it'd be her), but I literally found myself crying in the first episode!!
It was such a tear-jerker for me.
What I love about it is that she is this seriously ambitious doctor and wants to work alongside her dad as a surgeon but he's being a bit of a knob so she ventures off to be a GP for a year down South - far, far away from New York City.
Starting fresh in a new tiny town where she knows no one, she suddenly realizes this old man who'd been begging her to come and work at his practice for some time now, has died and left her half of his practice!
If only - right!?
It isn't all that glamorous though - adjusting to the 'country lifestyle' isn't easy and to gain the respect of the other doctor in town is seeming to be a pretty messy ordeal. Then there's the freaky click of ladies that seem to be living in the 1900's who don't seem to be very accepting towards her either.
Not to mention some seriously fit country men that are thrown into the mix to give you a series of heart palpitations between it all.
Despite Bilson's prissy, slightly 'plastic' role as Zoe Hart in the beginning, you quickly see her breaking down her barriers and turning into someone you just can't help but love.
I love the fact that this show is all about a young woman starting fresh in a new town, completely alone. It's been a big fantasy in my head to do just that for some time now but as much as I want to, I am really happy with my job right now. I am in the ideal situation to just work my butt off and save the majority of my salary away every month. It's like my little security blanket knowing I have this savings kept securely away so that one day, if and when I need it, it's there.
Plus, things in the little town I live in are going so much better lately.
I've figured out who my real friends are in town, avoid the crazies and plod along quite happily - and I've met a lovely man as I mentioned in a previous post.
So as for right now, my fresh start is merely that - a fantasy... a fantasy that for right now, has been put to sleep.
I still love this show though - it is so easy to relate to, so enjoyable and the perfect combination between deep and meaningful as well as fun and entertaining.
Some of the things that are said in the show makes it almost feel like the show was written for me! Most of the things that are said actually.
I feel like this show is just meant for me.
Have you ever felt that way?
Where you just connect on an entirely different level with a certain show, movie, song or book?
Like there's no doubt about it, it was written for you?
Well, that is Hart of Dixie for me.
